Space4CC and our collaborators at National Observatory of Athens are joining forces again to particpate in the Hatathon 2023.

What on Earth is an hatathon? Hatathon is a wordplay, using the word hata which means house in Ukrainian. It is an online creative and technical marathon, where participants work from home. More specifically it is a six-day brainstorm from an idea to its implementation. You learn new tools, come up with and implement a project, find a team of like-minded people, receive expert advice and get your ideas evaluated, and pitch your results in the final. So sort of a longer version of a hackathon.

The 2023 Hatathon 4.0: Ukraine Heritage Edition is in response to the challenges of the war and ignites an innovative spirit to preserve Ukrainian culture by combining technological solutions, creativity, and professional knowledge to keep Ukraine’s cultural heritage alive.

It goes without saying that this is a perfect match for Space4CC and a golden opportunity for us to further develop the successful collaboration with the National Observatory of Athens while strengthen our liaisons with Ukrainian communities.

The Hatahon takes place from July 24th – 30th 2023.
